  1. Great photo! Boyd is the man.

  2. I see at least 3 units, 4 officers. Where is the fire truck and the ambulance?

  3. Remember when they were Red White and Blue?
    .
    Or Green?
    .

  4. They have responded by removing all of the blue mailboxes…you have to go to Ho Ho Kus to drop off mail after 6PM…

  5. So NYC with all the junkies and homeless around has no problem keeping the mail boxes. Ridgewood which is creme de la creme is removing them because some invisible creature keeps opening them. Seriously , how hard is it to police a very, very small downtown where it is easy to tell who can potentially cause trouble?

  6. you live in a sanctuary state what do you expect ?

  7. Wait, so you are blaming the police for not being EVERYWHERE and seeing the mailboxes being vandalized as it happens?

  8. You can drop inside of the Ridgewood Post Office 24/7. Lobby is always open. Ask the homeless; they know.

  9. Fair Lawn police has made some arrests for this why cant rpd figure it out

  10. midland park po had the 2 boxes os their PO broken open about same time. PO supervisor and employees very guarded re: date of incident and details. Reportedly Investigation by MP PD and US Postal inspector underway. Thought I saw some traffic on blog that even mail dropped off inside Ridgewood PO never rec’d ? Gift cards more popular than ever.

  11. Where are the patrols from 1 AM to 6:30 AM hummmmm

  12. For not much money the post office should have cameras on the boxes..
    In addition to my regular security systems I bought the Amazon blink wireless cam systems and it works great . Any perp is recorded day or night
    Paid less than 200 for 3 wireless cams and a free cloud storage

  13. When the garage is built everything will be safer. No room for vagrants.

  14. Can someone tell us how come you not see police officers and the C b d can someone tell us how come you not see police officers in the CPD at 6am or so.??? Ware are they. No police presence In the hours of 6am to 7am? Hummm. Well miss manager.

  15. I think a village manager need ‘s to come into the CBD at 6 AM to see what’s going on. And do it under .cover

  16. I hear that no one is policing CBD at 6am but it takes 3 officers to inspect a mailbox together? You people in Ridgewood must have a lot of police officers
